You Can't Go Back Fridays: Fruit "Drinks"

You have no idea how many times I opened up our freezer growing up and was greeted by this sight:
 Hubbykins and I were discussing fruit juice last night, specifically how superior "Simply Orange" is to all other pre-packaged juices.  It led to this conversation:

me:  Do you remember that one that had a bunch of different citrus fruits in it, but it didn't really taste like any of them.  It just tasted vaguely juicy.  I should write Friday's blog post about it.

Hubbykins:  Oh, yeah.  What was it called?

me:  High Five.

H:  Five Alive.

me:  Five Alive...

And then, we both got that "ehh" look on our face.  Like we were trying to get an unmemorable but not entirely unpleasant taste out of our mouths.

[Anyone who can identify the fifth citrus fruit on that can gets a shout-out...lime, orange, grapefruit, lemon, and ???]

ETA:  Okay, I just broke the cardinal rule of "You Can't Go Back Friday" and checked the ingredients in Five Alive.  And we have a winner!  Kelly at Just Write guessed tangerine.  At least they stuck it in the back.


  1. That's so funny! I've never noticed that strange fruit hiding back's darker orange, so it must be a tangerine? Do people drink juice from a tangerine? Lol.

    This is why Sunny-D was in our fridge growing up!

  2. It could be a tangerine, mango, kumquat, tangelo, So many lol

  3. I don't remember Five Alive, but I do remember those little "barrels" of juice. (aka pure sugar!)

  4. That is too funny. I don't remember five alive at all.

  5. Marybeth & Nisa, I don't blame you for not remembering it at all. Seriously, it was the most "ehh" drink ever. And the crazy part is that they still make it!!

    Cleverly Inked....ah, the tangelo. The best of all worlds. :)

  6. I remember this stuff! It was gross! I liked Sunny Delight a lot better. Although fresh squeezed is the best :)

  7. LOL.. For the poster above, Pepsi is making their soda with real sugar I believe for a week or 2 with real sugar. AMAZING!
